Macrotone Joomla Audit is a support system component, that provides details of changes made upon the underlying database tables.

  • Get this

This tool creates 'change history' / 'audit' records upon selected table field changes, chosen by the Joomla administrator. It does not make any changes to the Joomla core code since all changes are 'captured' by underlying database triggers upon the tables. The component both creates and removes the triggers upon the component settings.

The current version runs only upon MySQL databases and required that the Joomla connection user has the 'TRIGGER' privilege granted within the MySQL database.

NOTE: Not all hosting providers grant their clients this particular privilege, in which situation the component will give a message upon installation and the installation will fail.

Uninstalling the component will remove all trace of the component as well as removing the database triggers created by the component.


  • No core Joomla core modifications required.

  • Independant of any other installed component.

  • Captured change data is language independant.

  • Back end access only. No front end connectivity.

  • Leverages the strength of the underlying MySQL database features.

  • Monitors INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE data changes.

Simple but powerful.

This extension displays IP address locations within Google Map(s). It takes the ideas from a Joomla 1.5 extension Visitors Google Map Lite by Serdar Gokkus and builds upon the capability in a number of ways. It provides full Joomla 2.5/3/x compatibility and implements a fully functional back end component. It is possible to store IP addresses against specified 'reasons' and display these upon a Google Map based upon the specified reasons. The developer uses it to display 'spam' and 'invalid logon' attempts on the site to better understand the source of the 'attacks'. The components displays the information upon Google Maps accessed through a configurable mapper module on the front end of the site. Multiple instances of the module can be used on the site. It uses Google Map API V3 and the IP geolocation API of IPInfoDB. In some circumstances the IPInfoDB information is not available and in these instances it obtains the IP geolocation from Geobytes as a backup. There are three distinct means of deriving the IP addresses to map: 1. Manual entry of an IP address. 2. Obtain IP addresses from Akeeba Admin Tools Pro Web Application Firewall log. 3. IP addresses of site visitors. Site visitor information can be captured by a 'visitor agent' module and stored within the component database table. These entries are dynamically controlled to ensure that the visitor IP addresses are only stored for the required time before being removed from the database table. Features of the component: 1. Google Map API V3 is used so no Google API KEY is required. 2. Clustering of existing markers. 3. Multiple map displays can be presented upon a single web page. 4. Size of maps are configurable. 5. Ability to load IP addresses from Akeeba Admin Tools Pro Web Application Firewall log. 6. Manual entry of IP addresses. 7. Private IP address ranges excluded from the search of the Geolocation sources. 8. Ability to run synchronisation as a cron task. This extension comprises of a Joomla administrator component and two modules. comipmapping: This component provides control over the contents of the database tables and permits addition and modification of entries. modipmappingmapper: This module is responsible for the display of the Google Map(s) in the desired module position(s). It also makes use of the Google Closure compiler. modipmapping_visitoragent: This module is responsible for the updating visitors information in the component database table.

Password Control

Password Control

The Password Control system plugin enforces password changes upon registered site users. The change can be enforced for the initial (first) connection only, and/or for periodic changing. Optionally the users can be redirected back to the home page when a password change is enforced. There is the ability to define 'exempt' users, i.e. users for whom the administrator does not want to enforce password changing. The password entered by the user is checked against the previous user passwords (number is site defined) to ensure that it is changed and that the user is not reusing a password again, or just pressing the submit buttom without providing a new password. The latest version permits the specification of password criteria, and also incorporates an optional password generator to create passwords meeting the specified criteria.
